Holiday at Home

Kite on Sandbanks BeachHolidaymakers worried about the financial climate are turning their backs on foreign holidays (particularly those within the Euro zone) and are planning a return to 'stay at home' holidays.

The most popular destinations in the UK are the traditional holiday spots such as Devon & Cornwall and the popular beach resorts, perhaps bringing a return to happy nostalgic memories of childhood. As such, Poole and Dorset in general, is well positioned to offer prospective holidaymakers an ideal location for a getaway closer to home.

One of the most commonly heard reasons for not taking your holidays at home is that you can't guarantee sunshine ! Whilst it's true that we can't promise sunshine, within Poole and the surrounding area there are so many varied attractions and experiences available that whatever the weather there's always something to enjoy.

Poole Customs House on Poole Quay - now a restaurantPoole with its myriad of Hotels, B&Bs and Guest Houses, Campsites and self-catering establishments ensures there is accommodation to suit all pockets and tastes provides a perfect base for a UK holiday. One of the main attractions for visitors to Poole is its spectacular beaches which can provide a great days entertainment for very little outlay. With all of the attractions available in Poole and the special events held during the summer months (many of which are free) providing plenty of things to do and see, there really is no reason for not coming to Poole in 2009 !

Studland in the PurbecksFor those of you who prefer to get out and about and explore, Poole can act as a perfect base for exploring Dorset, walking in the Purbecks or discovering the small country villages in Dorset or for going further afield and exploring the New Forest in neighbouring Hampshire. There is also the possibility of making a day trip to France.
